God answers prayers!  I prayed that God would protect me and Daisy and my house from the storm.  Not only did He do that, He fixed my oven through it!  Sometime during the night the electricity went off and when it came back on it reset my oven and it no longer flashed "F10" and is now working again!  Thanking God for His never ending mercy.  He knew that I can't afford to have the oven worked on never mind buying a new one!
Pretty amazing how He takes care of His children, huh?

I accidentally dropped a Lanoxin pill last night and of course it rolled.  And of course Daisy pounced on it.  I managed to convince her to drop it instead of eating it, thank God!  I don't know what it would have done to her, but I am sure it would not have been good!

She is always finding something to get into that I have no idea where she got it.  She had a watch, chewing on the band yesterday.  The last time I had seen it was when I laid it on my TV tray.  She is as mischievous as a 2 year old human baby!  But, I love her!  Just wish she would start pooping on the pad or better yet, outside!

I can tell the weather is about to do something because my chest feels tight.  Peyton had his sweat test today but, they won't get the results for a few days.  He is all choked up this evening, too.  I wish they find out what is wrong with him and how to treat it.  Poor kid has so many health issues.

Tropical Storm Issac

Tropical Storm Issac has a lot of people in panic mode.  I am not all that worried about it.  I just hope we actually get some rain from it.  It's so dry here and my grass is dying.  On the bright side, maybe it won't need to be mowed again but maybe once for this year.

I stepped out on faith and agreed to set up a website and Facebook page for church.  Bro. Marvin assured me that I will be trained to do the website and that it is actually easy.  We will see!

My oven is flashing "F 10" and not working.  I was going to unplug and plug it back in but I can't get to the plug.  I hope that I can get someone who can reach it.  I want to at least try that before doing anything else.  The manual says that it is possibly a part (don't remember which) has gone bad.  Always something around here!  First my computer and now the oven!

Keep smiling!  It will make those who hate you miserable to know you are happy!  Read that on Facebook and thought it was cute and true!

Daisy Take A Bath

So, Dr. Bob said to give Daisy a bath 2x a week with the medicated shampoo.  Today was the fourth shampooing.  I thought maybe she would be use to it by now.  That's what I get for thinking!  You would have thought I was drowning her from the crying and trying to get away from me.  To make matters worse, the direction say to leave on for 5 Minutes!  Those are the longest minutes of the day.  :(  Then comes the rinsing.  I used more shampoo than I needed to because it wasn't lathering up like it needed to be.  It felt like I never would get her rinsed off.  Try holding a squirming puppy by the collar, pour water all over her, rubbing to make sure the shampoo is out all the time telling her it is going to be ok.  Loads of fun!  Then after I took my bath, I had to put the ointment on the sore places.  Yet another battle!  They are looking much better, so all of the work is worth it.
Day 3 of not seeing the cat.  Think he may be gone for good.  I didn't want anything bad to happen to him, but glad he is gone.  It saves me the trouble of getting rid of him.

Life With Daisy

Daisy went to the shelter last Friday for another one of her "baby" shots and then to Dr. Bob because she has some sore places on her leg, face and under one arm.  Turns out to be ring worm.  Ugh!  More than likely got it from the cat.  So, $96+ later I have shampoo, pills and ointment to treat her and the cat with every day and shampoo 2x a week.  I think (and hope) the cat is gone.  I haven't seen him for over 24 hours.  It will save me the hassle of getting someone to take him to the shelter.  I am afraid either he or Daisy will get hurt the way they rough house.  Not to mention I can't afford both of them!  And he is bad about laying down right where I am trying to walk.  I have almost fallen because of him.  He runs in every time the door is open.
Daisy is suppose to be a Jack Russell/Pug.  Sometimes I see Pug in her and other times not so much.  Doesn't matter to me!  She is cute and sweet and smart.  That's all that counts!
